2 1 Living abroad 1.1 About business Working abroad KIKI YI, 54, Hong Kong, jewellery retailer ANIL BASU, 35, UK, software analyst JEAN-MARC SABATIER, 32, France, doctor MARIKA LAANET, 22, Estonia, engineering undergraduate Search for the keywords working abroad to see what jobs are on offer. Hold a class vote to choose the three most attractive jobs. 1 Look at the people in the photos. They all work away from home. Read the quotes below and match them with the people. 1 I work abroad but I never stay in one country for very long. I install software systems and train people how to use them. I m in Thailand at the moment and I ll be here for another six months. 2 My university has links with engineering firms in Germany. As part of my degree I m working for one of them in Hamburg. 3 I spend two months every year in India buying supplies for my jewellery business. At the moment I m staying in Jodhpur. 4 I spend ten months every year working abroad. I never know where I m going to be. It s always in places where there are medical emergencies. Have you ever lived or worked abroad? Do you know anyone who lives or works abroad? Compare your answers with a partner. Collocations 2 You are going to read an article about how to get a job abroad. Before you read match a word on the left with a word on the right to make a collocation. 1 career a) process 5 degree e) letter 2 work b) language 6 cover f) an application 3 foreign c) placement 7 short g) subject 4 application d) ladder 8 withdraw h) list Reading for detail 3 Read the article and mark the sentences T (true) or F (false). Change any false sentences to make them true. 1 To have a successful career these days you need to have experience of working abroad. 2 A work placement abroad will help your application attract attention. 3 Nannette Ripmeester thinks that the Euro CV is the best kind of CV to use when looking for a job. 4 You need to check that your employers will recognise your degree subject. 5 CVs are more important than cover letters. 6 A cover letter in France may be studied by a specialist. 7 Sarah Hall withdrew her application for a job in Spain because she didn t like the questions in her interview. 8 When working abroad you should behave in a similar way to those around you. Listening and-note taking 4 1:01 1:04 Listen to the four people from 1 talking about their work experience abroad and complete the table. name country how long likes Kiki India 1) 2) Anil Thailand 3) meeting people Jean Marc 4) 5) working with children Marika Germany 6) her local family Listening for detail 5 Listen to the interviews again and answer the questions. 1 Who was in Venezuela last year? 2 Who hopes to get a good reference from their company? 3 Who found the food strange they first arrived? 4 Who is going on holiday when their job is finished? 5 Who is staying in an expensive hotel? 6 Who has a lot of business contacts in the country where they are? 6

3 1.1 About business 6 In small groups discuss the questions. 1 Which countries would you like and not like to go and work in? 2 What problems do you think people who work abroad have? 3 Do you think working abroad is essential for a successful career? Why / Why not? CULTURAL IN today s competitive job market, not spending time abroad can seriously damage your chances of climbing the career ladder. It is no surprise then that more and more graduates and professionals are looking for opportunities to live and work in a foreign country. With record numbers of workers hoping to relocate, it is no longer enough to have done a work placement abroad or to speak a foreign language. This is no longer something that makes you different, says Nannette Ripmeester, director of Expertise in Labour Mobility. It is something employers expect. But even if you are a strong candidate, the application process for foreign jobs is far from straightforward. The EU has introduced the Euro CV to standardise application procedures throughout Europe, but Ripmeester believes that a culturally adapted CV is better. What do I mean by that? For example, in the UK, it is customary to add hobbies and interests at the bottom of the page. In Italy however, that information is not necessary. When you write your CV it is also a good idea to check whether a photo is necessary and whether an English-language CV should be written in American or British English. Another point to think about is whether or not employers will recognise your degree subject, especially when you have studied a subject, such as Wireless Network Systems, which doesn t necessarily translate into another language and culture. You also need to consider the cover letter, the first thing that an employer will read. Approaches differ from country to country: get the CV right but the cover letter wrong and you destroy your chances of getting short-listed for interview because the cover letter is the first thing that an employer will read. The mirror the kind of messages you get about communication and appearance British usually write long letters to draw attention to relevant sections on the CV, the Italians want one or two sentences and the French expect candidates to handwrite detailed letters which may be analysed by handwriting experts. When it comes to interviews, make sure you know about the work culture and understand the importance different countries place on language and speech. For example, the French use short sentences and hate silence, while Scandinavians have a deep respect for pauses. You may think these points are not important but by not paying attention, you are showing that you do not respect the culture of the country you wish to work in. Making a mistake at the interview is something Sarah Hall knows all about. She is from Liverpool in the UK and has worked in Germany, Sweden and Spain My advice is be aware of culture clash. In Britain there is usually a maximum of two interviews. In southern Europe they will call you back for a third or fourth interview. I lost a very good job in Spain when I thought they weren t serious. I withdrew my application because they asked me to go for a fourth interview. Looking back, I now realise they were doing as they always do. I behaved wrongly. It s important to show that you understand the working culture. Adapting a similar style of dress to your co-workers, eating the kind of food they eat, enjoying similar activities - these things help to win trust and respect. Think of yourself as a cultural chameleon, mirror the kind of messages you get about communication and appearance. People like people who remind them of themselves, and nobody likes what they don t understand. 7

8 1 Living abroad 1.4 Speaking Making small talk 1 Look at the tips for small talk below. What is small talk? Do you think the tips are useful? Tips for talk small TECHNIQUE ONE Always wear a Whatzit What s a Whatzit? Some people have developed a clever technique that works well for social or corporate networking purposes. The technique requires no special skill on your part, only the courage to wear a Whatzit. A Whatzit is anything unusual a unique brooch, an interesting scarf, a strange tie, a funny hat. A Whatzit is any object that draws people s attention so that they walk over and ask, Uh, what s that? TECHNIQUE TWO Whoozat? What to do when you haven t got a Whatzit Like a politician, go to the host and say, That man / woman over there looks interesting. Who is he / she? Then ask for an introduction. -or- Find out about the stranger s job, interests or hobbies. The host might say, Oh, that s Joe Smith. I m not sure what his job is, but I know he loves to ski. Aha, you ve just been given the icebreaker you need. Now walk over to Joe Smith and say, Hi, you re Joe Smith, aren t you? Susan was just telling me what a great skier you are. Where do you ski? Reading for detail 2 Read the article below about small talk to find: 1 three topics that you can make small talk about 2 two topics that you can t make small talk about 3 two tips for managing small talk. What is small talk? Your company sends you to an important international conference in the USA. While you are travelling from the hotel to the conference centre you meet somebody who works for the Spanish division of your company for the first time. The conversation that you have will probably be what we call small talk. What do people make small talk about? There are certain safe topics that people usually make small talk about. The weather is probably the number one thing. Sometimes even friends and family members discuss the weather when they meet or start a conversation. Sports news is a common topic, especially if a local team is doing extremely well or badly. If there is something that you and the other speaker have in common, that may also be acceptable to talk about. For example, if the bus is extremely full and there are no seats available you might talk about reasons why. There are also some subjects that are not considered acceptable when making small talk. Personal information such as salaries or divorce are not talked about between people who do not know each other well. Negative comments about another person not involved in the conversation are also not acceptable: when you do not know a person well you cannot be sure who their friends are. It is also not wise to continue talking about an issue that the other person does not seem comfortable with or interested in. Lastly, avoid one word answers, and ask questions to show that you want to keep the conversation going. 12
